The purpose of the Discovery Café Series is to provide guidance and support to UC Davis undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing an undergraduate research opportunity, presenting undergraduate research at conferences, and also applying for funding/awards related to undergraduate research. The Discovery Café at the URC will provide targeted, remote guidance and support to students interested in pursuing research opportunities, while maintaining a student-centered and college/major focused approach.

Discovery Café: How to Get an Undergraduate Research Position - FOR ALL MAJORS!
Join the URC staff for a workshop to learn how to get involved in undergraduate research projects under the mentorship of UC Davis faculty! Participants of this workshop should come prepared to work as we cover best practices on how to approach faculty members about a research position. Within this active session, attendees will explore research ideas and possibilities, faculty within their research area(s) of interest, draft email(s) to faculty, and detail a contact action plan for the research position ask.
